I seem to remember someone saying that the Simpsons were only a diversion......and it was going to be Battlestar Galactica or BTTF....hmmmmm.
While I dont like the idea of a ride using the same technology that was previously used for the old attraction, its still a welcome change.

Wow, that's refreshing news! So it's confirmed that it will be using the same platform that BTTF used? That would be a bummer...

Still, I'm looking forward to it! It'll open around my pass renewal time :)

BOOOOOO!!


Down with the Simpsons! Keep BTTF!


COme on now! Yeah, Simpsons is a classic too, but BTTF is much better for that kind of ride IMO


Well at least its not Fast and the Furious!

I liked BTTF way back when but i felt like the ride was old, and very herky jerky. If they are changinf it, hopefuly htey update the technology a bit

Between the Simpsons, Shrek, and Jimmy Neutron, it seems like the park is being overrun with cartoon characters.

Since the building has two screens it would have been nice to keep BTTF in one side and put The Simpsons in the other.

How is The Simpsons going to fit into the "World Expo" theme of that part of USF?

Would anyone happen to know what's going to happen with all of the cool BTTF props that were in the queue and pre-show areas? Is there a warehouse like Mouse Surplus that is selling them?

"How will the Simpsons fit in to the World Expo area?"

An even better question - how does Revege of the Mummy fit in the New York area?

Well there you go. the diversion turned out to be the diversion. Interesting tactic...

Simpsons, lets see what they can do!

From Gareth H on April 25, 2007 at 3:55 PM
DAVID - Revenge of the Mummy fits in to New York Nicely as its a MUSEUM EXHIBITION! Quite clever really!

i would have liked to see a remake/updated version of bttf.

i like the simpsons, but i do agree with the fact that there are too many cartoon rides.

From Diane Graebner on April 26, 2007 at 10:35 AM
I like the idea. The cartoon character's UO currently has are either very limited in appeal (Spongebob is popular I know, but not to the level of national icon, nor is Jimmy Neutron), or just plain old (Woody Woodpecker). Shrek IS a cartoon, but is not really perceived as one by many of the guests. The Simpsons HAVE reached the level of national icon and could be a nice addition to the park, especially when you consider that UO has somewhat of an "edgy" or "eat my shorts" approach to theme parks anyway.

It will fit into that area as neatly as anything else would. The area is an "expo" or exchange of ideas, and the theme to the new ride will be a new and innovative theme park in Springfield, owned by Krusy the Klown (not known for spending a great deal of money on actual innovations!). I think it fits.

More of a question than a comment. It seems people every where are really in love with the BTTF attraction. Personally it made me sick and gave me a headache the times I rode it. I'm just wondering why everyone likes it so much. Maybe I caught it on a "bad day" or something??? LOVE the movies, (the first 2 anyway), I'm just curious why folks like it so much.
